Sexual promiscuity is neither new nor novel. It is as old as humanity, always promising more than it can deliver. More palatable words have replaced the obsolete and ugly ones. Adultery is now an affair. Cheating and wife-swapping are now merely playing around. Inviting terms cause the ugliness of illicit sex to be veiled in mystery, fascination, and excitement.
What was once spoken of in closely guarded terms is now a bestseller, a torrid scene on the film screen, a television soap opera, table talk among teens, and late-night talk show jokes. Sex sells. Sex gets ratings. Sex is big business. Our culture is approaching total saturation. To speak of sexual purity in a society like ours may seem futile, but it is essential. Listen closely. This could mean your survival.
